Research suggests too much time in sedentary activities increases stroke risk

New Delhi, Aug 20 (ANI): According to a new research, adults younger than age 60 whose days are filled with sedentary leisure time (which includes using the computer, TV, or reading) and little physical activity have a higher stroke risk than people who are more physically active. The findings of the study were published in the journal 'Stroke', a journal of the American Stroke Association, a division of the American Heart Association. According to American Heart Association statistics, US adults spend an average of 10.5 hours a day connected to media such as smartphones, computers or television watching, and adults’ ages 50 to 64 spend the most time of any age group connected to media. Data also indicate that stroke-related deaths decreased in 2010 among adults 65 years and older.
